An all-star cast including Michael Sheen, Sam Neill, Ioan Gruffudd, and Game of Thrones vixen Lena Headey headlines the edge-of-your-seat thriller The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box, in theaters Friday, and we have an exclusive clip from the film!
The whimsical clip finds Neill as the malevolent Otto Luger, looking to get his hands on the mystical and powerful title box to control the world, confronting Sheen's Captain Will Charity, amusingly disguised as an enigmatic illusionist.
Based on the novel by G.P. Taylor, The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box casts Aneurin Barnard as Mariah Mundi, a young man whose life is turned upside down when his parents vanish and his younger brother is kidnapped. Teaming up with Will Charity of the Bureau of Antiquities, a trail of clues leads them to the darkly majestic, steam-powered Prince Regent Hotel. Infiltrating the hotel to spy on Luger, Mundi soon discovers a hidden realm of child-stealing monsters, deadly secrets, and the existence of a long-lost artifact with devastating supernatural power.
Directed by Jonathan Newman, The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box also stars Tristan Gemmill, Oliver Stark, Ian Reddington and Keeley Hawes, and is the first film in what is intended to be an Indiana Jones-style franchise.
